Float FAQ

DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING?
You may bring a brush/comb and if you wear contact lenses, bring a case to store them in. We supply everything else.

HOW DO YOU KEEP THE TANKS CLEAN?
We filter the tanks after use and keep them sanitised. The saline solution does not support parasitic, fungal or bacterial life in the water. Our tanks are much safer than using a public pool or spa.

WHAT IF I’M CLAUSTROPHOBIC?
Being in the pod is more like floating in space than being in an enclosed space. You’re always in control of your environment. You may keep the door open and light on. People with extreme cases of claustrophobia have consistently reported no problems.

CAN I DROWN IF I FALL ASLEEP?
No. Some people fall asleep and as the water is so buoyant you stay afloat.

CAN I BRING A FRIEND?
Absolutely. We have two tanks available.

CAN I FLOAT IF I AM PREGNANT?
Pregnancy terms: Floating is safe throughout the whole nine months of pregnancy (but please see note below). Important Note: Any woman who is going to float while pregnant should get the approval of their midwife, OB or other provider beforehand. There may be special considerations that your provider is aware of that we or you might never consider. Pregnant women love floating and many report feeling a deeper connection to their baby. There is even a special position you can float in that relieves all of the weight of your baby off of your body. If you are in your third trimester, or have any concerns, please consult with your physician before coming in.

I FELT SOME NAUSEA WHEN I FLOATED FOR THE FIRST TIME – IS IT NORMAL?
While it is reasonably unusual to feel queasy from floating, this reaction usually only occurs when extremely stressed people float. It is a result of the detoxing of your liver that makes you feel so nauseous. So while it is unpleasant, it is a sure sign that you needed to do something for your stress, and you should stick with it. Oh, and finally we recommend not consuming too much caffeine before floating to maximise your relaxation.
